‘Bunker Boy’ Humiliates Himself During Wednesday Cover Up Attempt

President Donald Trump continues to prioritize his attempts to come across as an actually competent leader. He’s apparently felt like his ego was threatened by reports that Secret Service temporarily brought him to a bunker at the White House amidst protests against police brutality that were recently unfolding in D.C. During an interview on Fox Radio that aired this Wednesday, he claimed that he wasn’t even brought to the bunker out of safety concerns — instead, he claims, he was there for an “inspection.” That excuse seems so transparently fraudulent, it’s laughable. Bunker, uh, “inspections” are not part of the ordinary presidential job duties.

CNN reporter Kevin Kiptak shared:

‘Trump says on Fox Radio interview he was in the bunker for “tiny” amount of time and it was “much more for an inspection” than for his own safety. “Very short period of time,” he said he was in the underground bunker for an “inspecting factor.” He said it was during the day.’

One Twitter user questioned the account. They wrote:

‘I’m sure he does all his own bunker inspections. Inspecting it for what? Bunkeriness? Hideability?’

Answers are not immediately clear. Report after report has outlined how Trump was brought to the bunker out of apparent safety concerns, as that’s what the bunker is there for — safety. It’s the same facility that was used around the time of the 9/11 terror attacks by Vice President Dick Cheney, and Trump’s usage of the facility has sparked a cascade of mockery. Signs have already popped up at protests mocking the president apparently relying on the bunker rather than actually engaging with the substance of the largely peaceful demonstrations that have unfolded in D.C. and elsewhere.

Writer Adam Serwer observed:

‘The funniest thing about the bunker story is Trump’s fear of looking weak means can be baited, over and over, into denying that he hid in a bunker and thus reminding everyone he hid in a bunker.’
